Are you seeking a tutor who can help based on your own learning style and needs? Do you want a tutor who will map out a plan to help you master content and skills? Since you want to improve your academic achievement, I will assist by concentrating on specific objectives plus a plan for mastery. I have lots of experience teaching and tutoring students in grades 4-12, adult learners, and professionals who want to enhance their competitive edge. My approach is to use multiple levels, approaches and texts to help learners advance. I find that technology is a vital tool to add relevance and interest. Resources which present concepts through listening, watching, and using manipulatives are tools you will find useful. Computer programs and board games make review meaningful and interesting. I aim to make learning a fun experience and to approach subjects with teaching methods which are both understandable and enjoyable. A teacher since age 22, I am certified in elementary and middle grades. Half of my career was spent as a high school teacher. Currently I teach adults at a technical college, as well as tutoring students of multiple ages. I earned a Bachelor’s Degree in education. At Georgia State I completed both a Masters in Education and an Educational Specialist Degree. My training and vast experience with students have prepared me to help with ESL, grammar, reading, TOEFL, English, vocabulary, writing, and history.
Patient and caring, I am committed to student success, confidence and competence I wish to share my passion for teaching with struggling pupils, plus learners desiring advancement. You can achieve academic success with effective motivation and instruction. Learning occurs when it engages you by being purposeful and relevant to your daily life. Success in learning occurs when information is presented at a level you can understand and grasp, for individuals learn at differing paces and levels of motivation. Tutoring allows the opportunity to tailor my presentations accordingly. Thus no subject is too hard. As an effective tutor, I want to help you build the confidence necessary to tackle hard subject areas, no matter how tough it might seem to be at first. This is my personal approach to tutoring. I am interested in this endeavor for these reasons, plus I love the joy of teaching.

Davis P. helped my kids in the summer with reading and writing.

Great Tutor for World History, Patient, and Very Knowledgeable
Davis responded within two hours after I went on-line trying to find a tutor for my son for high school world history. We started the first two sessions in person and because he was travelling, we have done the next two sessions over the phone. Davis knows the material very well. Even though he did not have a text book to review the material for the answers when we did the last two sessions over the phone, you would have thought he had the book in front of him as he gave feed back for each question my son had homework and finals review. He has been very patient and encouraging to m son for each session. This is the first time we have used a tutor and I hope we can find others in the future as good as Davis for other subjects.Brad, 6 lessons with Davis
Exceptional tutor with valuable lessons and immense patience
Mr. Davis is a brilliant tutor who can bring out the best in his students. He is helping my 9th grader with Language Arts - grammar and essay writing. I must say, the onset of high school was made easy under the expert guidance of Mr. Davis, who made some great book recommendations over the summer and coached my son how to write effectively. He continues to encourage my son to follow current events that should help him with other subjects too. I was very pleased to see my son's recent essay with its fine word choices and variety of sentences. To sum it up, Mr. Davis is a marvelous teacher!Amit, 24 lessons with Davis

Mr. P. has been teaching my two sons who are 12 and 15 years old. They are both ESL students who moved from Japan last April and started an American public school. Their English is limited, but they put the effort to learn. Mr. P. has been working with my sons for the first school semester once a week an hour each. He has been very patient, clear, kind, and has confidence in both my sons. He is not only a good teacher, he is a wonderful person from the heart. I am lucky and blessed to have found such an awesome tutor for my sons. They too are happy with Mr. P. and are looking forward to working with him in the second semester and the remaining school years to come. He is an excellent ESOL teacher and a wonderful World History teacher. My son made a 76 on his final exam in the first semester and I know for a fact Mr. P. played a big part of that high C.Alicia, 63 lessons with Davis
